Charity information

KEEN Oxford

KEEN Oxford is a charity providing a range of sporting and social activities for young people with special needs. We aim to provide one-to-one support for all our participants from local volunteers.

  • Mission statement

    The charitable objects of KEEN are:

     The relief of mentally and physically handicapped children and young adults
    by the provision of recreational and sporting activities.

     The provision of individual and group instruction at each activity.

     The sponsorship of weekly training sessions and special competitions for said
    activities.

     The provision of training and educations for volunteers assisting children in
    the course of recreational and sporting activities.

    ACTIVITIES

    KEEN runs four regular activities in Oxford University term time:

    AllSorts is our Saturday sports session for young people with special needs
    ('athletes') aged 4-25. Each week the athletes rotate around three different
    activities, covering a whole range of sports, from traditional games such as
    football and basketball to slightly more unusual activities like cheerleading and quidditch.

     Zig-Zag is our performing arts session, aimed at athletes of primary school
    age. Each session comprises a mixture of music, dance, craft and games.
    Activities follow a different theme every term, covering anything from nursery
    rhymes to Hollywood blockbusters.

     KEEN Teens is our social club for teenagers, aiming to provide age
    appropriate activities, such as cooking, science experiments, a
    multitude of games and a murder mystery night.

     GrEAT is our social club for young adults over 18 years of age. Again the aim
    is to provide age-appropriate activities, including pub quizzes, bowling and
    karoke nights.
